A Drumroll for Hopeful Powerball Buyers

Drumroll, please. The Powerball jackpot is currently at $1.5 billion, the largest prize in lottery history. Some Binghamton residents may hear literal drumrolls as they test their luck at that jackpot.

The cash payout of the record-breaking prize is $930 million. The large stake is drawing large crowds to local retailers. Cavanaugh’s Grocery in Binghamton is one of those locations. Today, the store will be hosting a New York Lottery drumroll session for those buying tickets from the location. While the odds of winning the jackpot are one in 292.2 million, could one of these drumrolls foreshadow a local jackpot winner?

The event will take place at the store from 11 a.m. until the Powerball drawing happens. That drawing will take place tonight at 10:59 p.m. on FOX 40.
